This Round Brass wire is the same great wire I use to make my high quality jump rings, clasps and findings. I rate it to be dead soft.

This is solid Rich Low Brass Wire and is perfect for medium - heavy duty projects. It is also known as Jewelry Grade Rich Low Bass, Merlins Gold, Nu Gold, Red Brass and Jeweler’s Bronze. You can polish it, tumble it, oxidize it or leave it to naturally develop a rich patina. This wire is not just recoiled in the USA, this is MADE in the USA.

I carry 2 brass alloys; yellow brass and this rich low brass which has a gold tone. While this is dead soft wire, it is dead soft for brass. Brass naturally has a harder temper than many other metals. I know this is confusing so I have included a chart.
